Why hiring a forklift makes sense

When weighing up the financial outlays in warehousing logistics, an important consideration is whether to rent or buy machinery – including the forklifts you’ll need to move your goods around. At Bidvest Materials Handling, we believe that hiring your forklift fleet will provide you with numerous benefits that can’t be overlooked. These include:

  • Hiring a fleet can help ease cashflow problems. Not having a huge capital outlay or exorbitant monthly repayments can help a business avoid cashflow problems. A short-term rental also allows room for manoeuvre if you see your cashflow is getting tight.
  • Hiring a fleet can facilitate increased seasonal demand. Short term rentals mean you can be covered with as many forklifts as you need during the season, without having the burden of those overheads in the off season.
  • Maintenance costs are reduced, and 24-hour breakdown assistance means you never need to worry about downtime.

For many, the flexibility of a rental is one of the biggest drawing cards. Rentals can be affordably structured to your requirements on a weekly or monthly basis, and long term-packages or 3, 5, or 6 years can be structured on a rent-to-own basis.
